Gamecock Gateway has reached capacity for the 2015-2016 school year. If a student who was offered Gamecock Gateway admission wishes to be placed on the Gateway Wait List, please submit the completed and signed Gateway Participation Form.

Important Note On Scholarships:

New freshman merit scholarship awards are now posted to the financial aid area of Self Service Carolina. Please note that the amount shown reflects the cash amount associated with the scholarship, not the full value of the award for students receiving partial or full reduction of out-of-state tuition. Tuition rates for 2015-2016 year will not be available until the USC Board of Trustees sets rates in July. The value of the reduction will be posted to your account once bills are generated in mid-July. Additional information about our scholarship rates and awards can be found here.
